NFL Rumors: Ted Ginn, Jr. Days Numbered with San Francisco 49ers?
This is a slow time for NFL rumors but one of the more interesting rumors out there surrounds Ted Ginn, Jr. and the San Francisco 49ers. Last season, the 49ers receiver corps was a weakness but this year it might just be a strength. Randy Moss, Mario Manningham, and A.J. Jenkins will join Michael Crabtree, Ted Ginn, Jr., and Kyle Williams to form a very respectable receiver corps for quarterback Alex Smith. However, with so much depth at the position Ginn might find himself to be the odd man out.
Ginn suffered a knee injury that kept him out of the NFC Championship game against the New York Giants. Kyle Williams filled in and the rest, as they say, is history. However, Williams has been working at returning kicks this offseason and cornerback Perrish Cox is also a very good return man. Though, nobody on the 49ers roster has the big play ability that Ginn has in the return game. The question is, do the 49ers want to keep a fifth or sixth receiver on their roster making $1.2 million?
Ginn had a lot of potential coming out of Ohio State. However, his inability to become a factor in the passing game has kept him from becoming one of the more dynamic receivers in the game. His route running has been terrible and he has been plagued by an inability to hold onto the football when it is thrown his way. Although, he has improved slightly in the latter category he still has a lot of trouble tracking the ball and running crisp routes. That doesn’t speak well for someone who is going on his sixth year in the league.
Then again, it makes sense for the 49ers to hold onto Ginn just in case Randy Moss doesn’t have much left in the tank after a year away from football or if A.J. Jenkins has trouble picking up the new offense. If the other receivers in camp make strides and Williams and Cox show they handle kicks then Ginn might be looking for a new team in August. As the summer winds down the NFL rumors surrounding Ted Ginn, Jr. might start to pick up.
